It’s no secret that Facebook (and the U.S government and whoever else) uses facial recognition technology. In a stand to fight against the Eye of Sauron and raise awareness to the downfall of social media tools, German artist Martin Backes designs these limited edition masks and sells them on his website.
Facebook designer Ben Barry left his permanent mark on Facebook’s new campus in Menlo Park by laying giant two-toned concrete type in the courtyard spelling ‘HACK’. This takes office pranks to a new level.
For those who are tired of seeing baby photos show up on Facebook (or maybe just for a laugh), Google Chrome has an extension called Unbaby that will replace baby photos on your Facebook page with photos of cats. LOL.
We have a Facebook Fan Page, and we use it to give away free MP3s, share videos we dig, and hear about your favourite cultural things (as well as share a few more of ours). So please Like our Lost At E Minor Facebook page, and then say g’day. Sweet. [Image link]
Facebook. Love it. Hate it. Think what’s-his-name is the douche of the half-century. Whatever the view, it seems the ubiquitous tepid blue and lowercase type is here to stay. With that in mind, the important question is: ‘Where can I find really disturbing paintings and photos of things man was not meant to know?’
On the Internet, no one knows you’re a cat. Or has to know that all you can see are cats. Especially when one cool cat in the form of Aberdeen-based web developer Drew Llewellyn has developed Facecats, a nifty Chrome extension that replaces every picture you see in Facebook with an inexhaustible supply of cat […]
What do you get when you take 36 heavy books (Game of Thrones), seven days, and lots of snap-off cutter blades? Exactly: a portrait made of books, starring the face of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. This is a great new project by Malaysian artist and architect Hong Yi.
Moo has a namecard range dubbed Facebook Cards that automatically pulls your profile picture and timeline cover pictures from your profile for personalised namecards with very little fuss. Perfect if you’re lazy like us, like variety, and not paying. It’s free, except for posting and packing fees.
Photoshop-manipulating pictures before posting them on Facebook? Nothing unusual about that. But UK-based illustrator and graphic designer Ewa Mos takes this idea in a different direction, illustrating over pictures of faces in a delicate and divisive manner.
We all have to make tough choices in life. For those who can’t quite decide whether to accept or reject a Facebook friend request, this flowchart helps you make up your mind in a considered, sensible process. [see the full flowchart below] [Source]
Brooklyn-based Tag Brum is a Brazilian artist whose primary method is drawing and collage. His works explore his experiences of growing up in southern Brazil. His latest pieces talk about street kids and the overwhelming voyeurism of social networks, where eyeballs are staring from nothing at nothing, constantly pressuring one to glamorize every mundane breath to an entropic level.
A new experimental online game is taking the Facebook experience to a whole new level. META Assassins, a tournament-based assassination game, makes use of a downloadable plugin to detect browser activity and, in turn, triggers shootouts when your assigned ‘target’ lands on the same page. This concept game also features real jobs, like Streetview Surveillance […]
We have a Facebook Fan Page, and we use it to give away free MP3s, share fun videos, and filter some content from the site. So now you can get your daily fix of cultural goodness and continue to make Mark Zuckerberg rich(er) in the process. Yes, life is grand. For some, at least. So […]
So Facebook wasn’t around when some of the most calamitous and significant events in history went down (literally, in the case of the Titanic). But if it had been, our friends at Cool Material have envisioned the sort of disarmingly blasé responses they would have received.
The Everything Ages Fast campaign for Brazil’s Maximidia Seminars features fake vintage ads for Youtube, Skype and Facebook. It got me thinking about changes in society over the past fifty years or so. Before the world went digital, people read or watched a glittering product promise, or they heard about some new wonder-product from their neighbours. They saw ads, courtesy of clever Mad Man-type folk, and they bought the promise. Then they told people about the promise.
